Beeplay, Zoegeh Nimba County Liberia West Africa: – In August 2020, Citizens of Nimba County including stakeholders, Civil Society Actors one and all provided through a well laid down budgetary allocation, signed resolution for USD$2.7Million for some selected project activities across Nimba to be fully managed and implemented by The Project Management Committee (PMC) of Nimba Chair by Harris Y. Yeanamie.

Processes leading to the election of this current #NIMBA #PMC was heavily condemned by many Nimba Citizens both home and away right on this very Nimba D-9 TV when for the first time the Nimba County Council Sitting was screen live from start to end that enable everything far and near to have watched the election of this team of #PMC. That story is fast gone but the reference still remains.

Fast forward, the #PMC started her operations but few months later, civil society actors requested for a Social Audit something which till now has not been done. Nimba D-9 TV equally hosted both the Nimba Civil Society Council Nimba Chapter Chair at the time Alexander Nyahn Jr and Nimba PMC Chair Harris Y. Yeanamie in separate interviews.

One group claims that the USD$2.7Million has been misapplied when another quarter have it that they are proceeding rightly.

Beeplay-Zoegeh Health Center Road in Nimba

What remains unclear is there are still series of projects to be completed including the grounding of all the Nimba earth moving equipment that were serviced as part of the plan to have many of those named projects implemented.

On February 11,2023 Nimba D-9 TV Public Health Reporter took a road trip from Gompa City through Saclepea, Bahn , Beeplay and then to the Zoegeh Health Center that is catering to the health and safety needs of  citizens in that locale.

Our Public Health Reporter has just left from Zoegeh Health Center and met this situation at the very bad part of a  sketch of the road leading to the only Health Center in that part of Nimba.

To the #PMC if nothing is done to have this sketch of road fix till rainy season starts in April 2023,it will be a very huge challenge for free movement of the ambulance including goods and services as way of meeting the livelihood of citizens. Attention needs to be given to this because it is the road leading to the only Health Center in that zone.

Imagine if there are some health complications and needs referral, this place could just have the situation worse.

Ma Mary Karter who also spoke to our Public Health Reporter after the motorbike she was on hand accident spoke is calling on the County authority to have this part of the road fix before the rainy season starts.

Keep following Nimba D-9 TV for more happenings across Nimba and other parts of Liberia and the world.

Thanks to SOS-AID for aiding this road trip!

Commissioner Zomonway expressed his satisfaction with the progress of the roadwork, stating, “I am very delighted to see ArcelorMittal fixing our roads because the road was in a very, very deplorable condition. We could hardly drive cars on the road to reach some of the critical areas, mainly places like Bona. In fact, today, I spoke with the engineer working on the road, and I am very happy.”
